Fantastic!

I have an old box which I'm pretty sure has a cpu about 1.6, non-dual core.
Tomorrow,  (too much noise at this hour of night here!)  I will try 
either/or Kworld 210, Pinnacle 310i, Kworld 220.
I will  try  both current v4l-dvb and that patch of yours in  
tda10046x.c, and see what happens.

Is it worth trying different msleep values?

All I can think of is this is a relatively recent event with this 
"revision FF" business,
but I can't be exact as to how long ago I noticed it.

Regards,
Timf
